HI STANDARDS.
HI PERFORMANCE.
HI, WE'RE INKLING.

Inkling brings together a dynamic team of specialists from diverse fields spanning Research, Strategy, Idea Development, Culture Development, Design, Digital and Sales, united by a defining belief in using brand-led-thinking to take businesses from where they are to where they should be. We live and breathe peak performance, so you can too. Whether it’s pushing ourselves to hone our discipline’s skills. Absorbing the latest trends. Immersing ourselves in your business like it were our own. Staying up late to hit your fingernail-biting deadline. Brainstorming ideas on our weekends, lunch break, or train ride home. Or simply bringing the freshest baked pastries and coffee to your meeting (Jean-Claude or nothing!). Together we bring the creativity and thinking power to fulfil your brand’s high performance potential.

SIMON HART

LEAD: STRATEGY + INSIGHTS
FOUNDER AND OWNER

“I stand up on my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way”.

Robin Williams, Dead Poet Society

Simon launched Inkling in 2019 to shake up the way businesses think and behave. As Strategy and Insights Lead, he is the client’s first contact on a journey of discovery that pinpoints conditions that create success. It all starts with an ‘inkling’. After noticing a trend in the market, organisations come to Simon to better understand what’s going on by actively seeking out better information. Then it’s off to Inkling’s creative, design and digital teams, where he rides shotgun across idea development and campaign execution.

Simon is a truly unique individual. Rebelling against his rigid schooling upbringing, life experiences have shaped him into an intelligent deep thinker and candid conversationist with an unashamedly eccentric Kiwi sense of humour and style, whose innate curiosity propels him to push against convention. Simon credits three circuit breakers – an uncle, aunty and English teacher - who opened his eyes to the power of high performance, instilled a willingness to withhold judgement, and taught him to view the world from different perspectives.

Fast-forward to today and clients describe Simon’s approach as ‘lightyears’ ahead, with his radical Success-Based Thinking approach helping businesses consciously act with courage and conviction. When you dig deep into the psyche of customers and colleagues, you reveal game-changing intel that helps break down their defensive ‘default mode’. Smarter decisions, more meaningful market and employee connections. That’s what it takes to be a braver, bolder brand.
